Registration: Take advantage of the early bird discounts by registering on or before March 15. Registrations that are postmarked by June 9 will be confirmed. June 10 and later, please call to register at +1 847 699.2929.

Payment: A completed registration form, along with full payment to process your registration (your credit card information or company check payable to ASSE), must accompany your registration. Registrations without full payment will not be processed.

Groups: Bring eight or more colleagues from your company and save on the entire conference. The more attendees you have and the earlier you register, the more you save! Your group attendees must all be registered by June 9 5:00 pm CST*. Note to Group: If the number of cancellations brings the group size down to a lower discount level, each registrant will be billed the difference between the discount already paid and the next discount level fee.
* rates vary based on registration date

Substitutions: Need to substitute one person for another? Please submit substitutions in writing by May 15 to or fax to +1.847.768.3434. If pricing for the new attendee changes the total cost of attending the conference, you will be charged or refunded for the difference in fees. After May 15 a $85 substitution fee will apply. Substitutions after June 9 will be handled on-site.

Cancellations: Full refunds (yes, that’s right!) will be granted to written requests received by May 5 via email to or fax to +1 847 768.3434. Cancellations received in writing between May 6 and May 26 will be assessed the following cancellation fees: Conference $295; Pre and Post Conference Seminars/ Workshops $100 per course. Cancellations received after May 26 will forfeit refunds in their entirety. Refunds will not be issued for any missed sessions or events (Technical tours, luncheons, etc.), including missed sessions or events due to travel delays or cancellations. No refunds will be given for the Night Out after April 30. We are unable to accept cancellations over the phone. Cancellation notifications must be submitted in writing.

Government: A completed government purchase order or training authorization form must accompany your registration form if not paid in full at the time of registration. However, this is not considered payment. Your registration will have a balance due until full payment is received. Registrations received without a PO or training authorization form will be returned.

Non-Member Students: In order to qualify for the non-member student rate, you must be able to demonstrate that you are carrying 15 or more credit hours as an undergraduate in a full-time capacity at a university or college, and not be employed full-time in the safety, environment or health fields.

Physically Challenged: Whenever possible, arrangements will be made for physically challenged, those with dietary restrictions or allergies provided 90 days written notice. Please include a letter of explanation, your name and phone number, and attach to the registration form. We will contact you to further discuss details.

Consent: Registration and attendance at, or participation in, ASSE conferences and other activities, constitutes an agreement by the registrant to ASSE’s use and distribution of the registrant or attendee’s image or voice in photographs, videotapes, electronic reproductions, and audio tapes of such events and activities.
